An elemental workshop.


Customary with any optical media release, side-by-side Blu-ray versus TV Comparisons have become available of Moretsu Pirates’ first and second BD volumes – and the changes aren’t bold or audacious at all.

There’s certainly nothing bodacious about Moretsu Pirates’ modest discrepancies between its televised and optical media releases – the alterations performed are positive ones, however they’re not particularly extravagant, odd, or questionable as is common with most anime Blu-rays. Most of the changes noticeable are the basics of color correction, fine adjustments, and whatnot – all of which are respectable, yet nothing sensational. Yet admittedly, there is one variance which shines above all the others.

In the TV airing, a scene of the megane wearing tsundere Chiaki when she’s first introduced within episode one is blurred during a quick camera motion – the BD fixes that. It’s not so much the resolved blurring we’re concerned with, rather, Chiaki’s legs which prove rather enticing have been made clearly visible – and prior to this adjustment, we might not have paid much attention to her fantastic lower body.

In all seriousness however, the scene above is angled too conveniently in relation to her skirt – yet that’s actually unrelated to the blur. As one looks through the other comparisons below, several many more blurred moments are fixed – and it seemed to have been a general issue now solved, definitely enhancing the viewing experience tremendously, in more ways than one.

Of the other differences aside from those aforementioned, the minor incomprehensible ones are mainly noted on the navigational maps – take note of any navigational chart, and one will see the elements have been shuffled around ever so slightly. While nothing too spectacular, it seems that less is certainly more in the case of Moretsu Pirates’ Blu-ray as only a few mild fixes manage to make for a significant improvement all around.

    Few changes means there was few errors.
    Or was there any particular thing you wanted to be changed?

      “Or was there any particular thing you wanted to be changed?”

      If there was I would have mentioned it. Like the article states, these changes are positive – and as you say yourself, “few changes means there was few errors”.

        I’m starting to get used to your ambiguous writing style, but sometimes I’m still perplexed xD

        But don’t misunderstand, I like your blog, you post some good stuff everyday and it’s really fun to read.

          Thanks for the complements.

          I’m sure you recall how I looked down upon Symphogear’s BD, and that remained true – yet in the case of Moretsu Pirates when I say the edits aren’t “bold or audacious”, that’s actually a plus in this case. Anime is an art, and thus it remains open for interpretation on a vast scale – and in that, the ambiguous writing comes to play. When I write, I’m already anticipating some will agree with me, some will disagree – a few will love, a few will hate, oh well. Yet in any case, I appreciate that you continually express your own opinion in the comments – also if you have any feedback, feel free to share. It’s very valuable.

        I wouldn’t regard most of the corrections as crucial or even needed. The tv version is pretty solid as is. I can even imagine that with very little effort they’d be able to release tv version that might be put straight on discs. However, that would take away very important marketing point: buyer’s urge to get superior, polished and finished product. I’d even dare say that some of the glitches and mistakes in the first airing might be left or made intentionally for increasing the number differences and significance of this strategy.*

        *-Might be true only when the company doesn’t F’up the production schedule and budget limits. (I speak of thee, SHAFT.)
